Today’s selection consists of three tracks which are perfect for the dance floor. But we don't only want to talk about the music today - we'll also be discussing the band names and track titles.
Danish producer Brynjolfur obviously likes combining words, choosing a compound for both his alias and the title of his latest single. “Steezy” is a term borrowed from snowboarding, meaning a person who combines style and ease. The Icelandic name brynjolfur, on the other hand, unites the Old Norse words Brynja (armour) and Ulfr (wolf). A perfect combination for such a stylish track rooted deep in the Chicago house tradition.
Moiré "BBOY 202"
Ever since his first EP “Never Sleep”, released in 2013, enigmatic London-based producer Moiré hasn't stopped surprising us with his deep, shuffled version of house. He took his name from the pattern created when two identical (usually transparent) patterns are laid one on top of the other and slightly offset. He often uses this effect for his cover artworks - his course for beginner b-boys, “BBOY 202”, being no exception.
Louisahhh!!! & Maelstrom "Night Clubbing"
Finally we have a collaboration between LA-based DJ and producer Louisahhh!!! and Nantes-based producer Maelstrom. Both of their aliases are variations on their forenames. But while Louisa Pillot only added three “h”s and three “!”s to her name, Joan-Mael Péneau went for an allusion to Edgar Allan Poe and Nordic languages. Poe borrowed the Dutch word 'Maelstrom' for a tale about the powerful whirlpool Moskstraumen. Prepare for a clever transition - it's a whirlpool just as powerful as this track here.
